Kokombas fight each other over Fulani property

After killing and sacking Fulanis in Gushegu in the Northern Region, some Kokombas have turned the anger on each other fighting for the property left behind the fulanis.

Two communities- Jujong One and Jujong Two communities are fighting among each other and hastily amassing the wealth of the fulanis, Joy News’ Tamale Correspondent Mahama Shaibu reported.

Last two weeks 13 Fulani herdsmen were killed and several others injured in a dawn attack in Gushegu which forced many of them to seek shelter and refuge at the Disabled Resource Centre, leaving their cattle and food stuff behind.

The battle to secure the left-behind property led to clashes leading to torching of houses in one of the two communities.

“Two Communities fought over some cattle and sheep belonging to Fulanis who had fled the area and that resulted in the burning of six houses belonging to one of the communities- Jujong Number two,” Fuseini Alhassan, DCE of the area confirmed the recent clashes to Joy News Correspondent.

Several houses were also burnt down including the farm produce, he added.

He said his outfit together with the Regional security forces have taken steps to stop the two communities to have a go at eachother.
